Our Stream Study

Last week we went to the stream up the Brook to learn about healthy streams.

This week some groups of students (who will be presenting and teaching other students next week at a BIG Kids' Expo) have been experimenting using the online website xtranormal to make their very own animated movies about the features of healthy streams.

Check out the groups' work below, we can't wait to show you the completed 'proper' projects after the Kids' Expo next week!

    Our Xtranormal group's reflections on their experimental first (second) try:
    * we need to make sure the spelling is correct so they don't say it funny
    * we need to make sure we don't miss out words so that it makes sense
    * we need to look through the choices of voices to make them sound clear
    * for the real xtranormal we need to make our movies longer
    * we need to plan what we want to say
    * to make it longer we need to say why the features are important to healthy streams

    I think these videos are amazing! I have tried to make one but it wasn't very good - maybe I need some help from Room 9. I think all the work you are doing at the ICT Expo is also fantastic - well done Jacob, we are very proud of you.

  6. Hi Ellie and Luke,
    Thanks for the information. I did not know streams had to be shaded and that it's good if a stream is bubbling.

  9. We loved watching your Xtranormal movies. Thanks for sharing with us. We are writing you from Chelmsford, Massachusetts in the USA. We're teachers, with a three year old son, who we hope grows up to be just like the students in Room 9.

    Thanks,

    Julie and Eric
